Liked: Ser engañado

Disliked: En la paguina web anuncian disponer de parking propio. Razon principal por la que reservarmos con ellos, y no solo resulto que no lo tenian, sino que no nos fueron de ninguna ayuda y tubimos que pagar 20€ de un parking privado (muy cercano, se enorgulecian en decirnos...) al precio de la habitacion. Es un sitio nefasto para ir con coche.

Liked: The price was good as was the location, plus the rooms were clean. The wifi access was also good.

Disliked: The fact that we were not informed in advance that food and alcohol could not be brought into the hostel. Also, when my group arrived, the receptionist told me I had to have a passport or NIE card to check in, despite no mention of this on the website. He pointed to a sign saying that passport/NIE was necessary for check in and said it wasn't him that decided it, it was the government. I told him if we needed this it should be written on the website. After kicking up a bit of a fuss he relented and accepted my UK driving license, a perfectly acceptable form of ID in every other hostel I've stayed in!

Liked: The room was quite big...

Disliked: Their dishonesty, the noise of the plumbing during the night, the staff (not being able to formerly excuse themselves or to offer a little something for the misunderstanding... like they were saying, the noise from the pther rooms (walls made of paper almost), the ridiculous size of the bathroom.

Liked: It was clean, and the room was very nice.

Disliked: They claim to have laundry facilities, but what they mean is, you can go to a laundromat a 5 minute walk away and overpay to have them dryclean your clothes. Also, the shower was really wierd and it was quite noisy at night. Everytime someone upstairs flushed a toilet we thought we were in the middle of a thunder storm. The furnace wouldn't turn on, but then suddenly went crazy in the middle of the night and we woke up in a sauna.

Liked: The staff were very helpful, particularly the gentleman who spoke English. The room was pretty and quiet (the only noise came from the street below, but that disappeared when we closed the windows and wouldn't even have been that bad with them open at night), with a balcony looking towards the city. We were within a few minutes walk of the old town of Salamanca and all of its attractions.

Disliked: Nothing major. The rooms did not have air conditioning, but we were provided with a fan and it wasn't a problem. This location does not provide breakfast, but there are two supermarkets within a few blocks of the hostel as well as a number of restaurants.

22 February 2011 BETTY MARILYN would recommend this property

Liked: The location of the accomodation was perfect because you could walk to the centre of Salamca in about 5 minutes, it was also about a 10 minute walk to the coach station. The rooms were lovely and the staff were wonderful because they had lots of suggetions about which places one could visit and also places to eat out that were not too expensive.

Disliked: The only thing that I would change is that kettles could be made available for making tea/coffee because the accommodation doesn't provide breakfast or food of any sort therefore it would be nice to at least be able to make drinks in the room rather than have to go out every time one wanted some tea/coffee etc.
